Ladybug the Rambler

If folk music is a cupcake, then her has soul icing with blues hip hop sprinkles. (oh and the darkness, don’t forget the darkness).


The Tailor

The Tailor will grab you by your hips, spin you across the floor, whisper in your ear and send you to sleep with a lullaby. He dreams a future rhythm and walks a future blues, made up of tender slices from all over this crazy world. He travels with a Broken Beatbox and a Strange Banjo and he is not afraid to use it.
His legendary Live performances have been delighting, confounding and seducing audiences across the West Coast for more years than he would care to admit. Highlights include residency at Shambhalah Living Room Stage for ten years and an opening slot for a Beats Antique tour. Currently he runs the Rattle performance space in east vancouver, and is a founder of the Sea to Seed music tour of Salish Sea.
The music has been featured in the short film Bury him in the Desert, a cooking show the Perennial plate, a crazy swedish fishing documentary, and a number of racy love scenes. of course.


“Our purpose is to empower aboriginal youth by passing on the knowledge of our people through music and storytelling.”- KASP

Rob Sawan knows struggle and the street intimately. Now he’s devoted his life to telling the stories from there to heal First Nations communities. The Penticton-based Cree rapper who records under the moniker K.A.S.P. worked his way up from a rough East Van youth rife with alcohol and drug abuse to become a motivational speaker. Through both music and oral narrative, he tackles topics such as learning legal rights, addictions and cyber-safety alongside finding your inner warrior, sharing life stories and building a better future.

Jacques Mindreau

Jacques Mindreau sings in an operatic voice in a babelesque language, plays a haunting and resonant violin with a european folk like twist, and haunts you long after the notes have faded.
